Valentine's Love

Good evening all.  It has been a crazy week here but for good reason.  We have one extra toddler in the house, my brother's daughter.  We are taking care of her while my sister-in-law goes to meet my brother who just came back from Afghanistan.  We are so glad he is back safe and sound for good and are really grateful for his service.  A house with three children 4 and under does make for a little chaos but alot of fun.
The project I have for you tonight is the boxes I made for my 4 year old's class valentines.  I decided to make little match boxes to hold candy for the kids.  She loves them and very proudly wrote her name on the back of each box.

Craft Recipe:

   * Matchbox cut at 4" from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More
   * Heart cut from Create-a-Critter cut at 1.5"
   * Sentiment from My Pink Stamper Love-alicious
   * Swiss Dot cuttlebug folder
   * Xmas Red Stickles
   * Ribbon from stash

I just used a standard tape runner for the adhesive as I figured they would get torn apart while the kids were trying to get the candy.  I am entering this in the weekly challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut, which was to use a heart on your project.  Hope you all enjoy and have a great end to your week. 


  1. Aaw, these are super cute match boxes:) The kiddos are sure to love them!
